Hi all

my son has the following netbook:
ASUS Eee PC 1001P-M Black 10.1 inch Atom N450 1GB 160GB Windows 7 Starter.
Is it possible to upgrade memory to 2gb and the install a W7 home premium?

Thanks

Yes :)

IIRD they take DDR2 RAM.

Possibly a cheaper option?

Any reason why you would want to remove the existing W7 Starter edition and replace it with W7 Home Premium?

Yup, just upgraded the RAM in my EeePC from 1GB to 2GB DDR2.
There is only one RAM slot so can't just add another 1GB module, you will need a 2GB one.
I was running Win7 Pro on it fine before the extra RAM too.

Good morning
thanks to you all for the effort.:thanks
I'll put your suggestions/replies to my teenager. He may not want to spend that much, though it all depends on the day.
